So... What Are You Working on Now?

  • thumbnail for Larry Blocher
  • There are many important steps to becoming a successful band director. However, “MUS 101: Whatever," may have a better chance of functioning as intended—preparing instrumental music students for success—if the students start thinking now about what they will need to know and be able to do as band directors. This clinic will focus on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes students and beginning band directors need to develop "along the way" to becoming successful music educators.
